All good things come to an end

All good things come to an end

A Poem by Jada Johnson
"

do all good things come to an end?

"

 


this is where it begins and ends, hello my friend it was so nice to see you again 


then there's the strange thought of them forgetting you and eventually, you hear their voice that says oh you look great, but what was your name again


and now that were passed that, let's sit on rooftops and hum our favourite songs while we indulge in this soon to be great love


let's scream at the top of our lungs, telling each other I love you and this is where we’ve always belonged 


you and I, we’ll soak up in the sun while you hold me in your arms and whisper in my ear saying you’re everything I want


let's take pictures that we can look at it when we’ve grown old together, so maybe one day our children will look back at it and witness the amazing times we’ve spent together


remember that time you once told me that you couldn’t stop thinking about your future life, and how you realized you didn’t want any part of it if I wasn’t your future wife


I miss those nights, where our silly little fights turn into play fights and just an awesome time


and now you’ll let me lay on your chest and you’ll look out in the open, meanwhile were both left with a million thoughts that will continue to remain unspoken


maybe it was the lack of communication, and now we spend time apart knowing that it will only cause us frustration


we now spend more time screaming and yelling, so caught up that we haven’t realized this story seems like it already found its ending


I thought you said you’ll always be my motivation and I was your everything, or I was wrong and this was one great big illusion 


and now we’ve concluded that you and I no longer remain exclusive, no longer my cupid, love is stupid 


this is where it begins and ends, hello my friend it was so nice to see you again


                                      




                      “do you ever think this great love will reoccur again?”

There seems to be a heartbreak somewhere but one that recurs and spins around to create frissons of wonder if.. The words you use and how really lure the reader into wanting to know what happened, why, did you share, forgive or what... fine writing that.. not merely laying words like a path but beckoning hungry reader to follow it. Great writing, intelligently focussed on the movie you quote.

Very nice poem Nada. There are so many relationships that start and end like this After fifty six year with ny wife I learned that we always look at our partners yesterday face and neveer see him/her with brand new eyes. I enjoyed your poem, my friend....Peter

This is a great story of how you can fall in love with someone and then fall out of love with someone too. You can definitely feel the pain the character is going through with knowing that they planned on growing old with this person, and then the relationship just ending. It's a sad poem, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

I'm a huge fan of this piece, to say I adore it is an understatement. It's nostalgic in terms of romance, I think anyone who has ever been in a relationship can and should be able to relate to theme brought forth by your words.It speaks volumes of young love or even just love in general- the way one thinks while in a relationship hoping that they'll stay forever with their lover and planning on it. It also reminds the readers that no one is perfect and that being in a relationship does not come without its fights or chaotic moments.

It's fairly interesting how I came about this poem. I saw you leave a pretty constructive review and decided to check you out. The title of this poem gave me a sense of deja vu because I say this all the time. Some would say it is my motto of this year. But on to your work, it is fantastic. The structure is perfect and at first glance comes off as difficult but it flowed so well as I read. As for your actual words. I am blown away. You use heart in interpreting this short film into words and it's great. I love the raw tenacity of it all. True feelings were put into it.

My favorite line:

"you and I, we’ll soak up in the sun while you hold me in your arms and whisper in my ear saying you’re everything I want"

Sensual and lively. Excellent work here. Thank you for sharing a piece of your mind.

Honest story shared in the poem. Sometime two people learn. Forever isn't possible. A hard place to be. I liked the video also. Thank you Jada for sharing the amazing poetry. You made the reader think.

I enjoyed this one and you are welcome.

"and now we’ve concluded that you and I no longer remain exclusive, no longer my cupid, love is stupid " this line hit home for me. Favourite one so far

I like the emotions in this poem.
It seems promises made, love lived and hearts changed and souls moved on, though memories of old times linger in nostalgia.
So life goes sometimes!

I watched the piece and it seems to mirror this write in the way relationships can become stale and samish and boring once the glamor and romantic enthusiasm has worn off. I guess people often have high expectations and the early rush of excitement needs to be tempered with real life if longevity is to be.
